Social Policy in Latin America - old and new directions
Social Policy & Administration, 2018, issue no. 6.
The 2018 regional issue will focus on social policy in Latin America after two decades of significant transformations in a number of sectors and programs. The period includes important innovations such as pension reforms, the expansion of cash transfers for poor families and children, the development of new healthcare programs, and an emerging agenda on childcare and maternity policy in some countries. It also includes the persistence of traditional arrangements, for instance in social insurance policy. The regional issue encourages submissions focusing on change and continuity in Latin American social policy including welfare models, social policy financing, policy processes, policy evaluation and impacts. As the years of economic prosperity come to an end and a political shift is taking place in some countries, we also welcome articles looking at the implications of recent economic and political changes on social policy development. Please send abstracts to the editors, Professor Bent Greve, University of Roskilde, Denmark (email@example.com) and Camila Arza (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the 1st March, 2017. You are also welcome to contact one of the editors if you have any queries regarding the regional issue. Final papers due on the 1st September, 2017 and after referee process review revised papers by 1st January, 2018. For information on style etc. please refer to the journal's webpage.

Nordic and Baltic welfare states - close but different
Social Policy & Administration, 2017, issue no. 4.
Social Policy & Administration has since its first regional issue on the Nordic welfare states in 2004, and again in 2011 provided a framework for the development in a specific cluster of welfare states in Europe. In 2017, a regional issue will deal with both the Nordic and Baltic welfare state. This includes their recent development (how and why), but also looking for, despite historical and close political connections between the Baltic and Nordic countries, why there are still, now close to 30 years after the change in Eastern Europe, so strong differences in size, approach and support for welfare.
Please send abstracts to the editor, Professor Bent Greve, University of Roskilde, Denmark (email@example.com) before the 1st March, 2016.

SP&A Virtual Issues
SP&A 50th Anniversary Virtual Issue
Social Policy & Administration Top Cited Papers with Commentary and Author Review.
SP&A are pleased to announce their first e-Special Issue Welfare and Governance.
This is the first E-issue of Social Policy & Administation. The idea is to look at a certain topic on which, over a number of years, a number of articles have been published and, by bringing them together, to show how a concept, idea or policy area has changed over the years or how, by looking at it from different perspectives and angles, one can shed new light on a topic. This is despite, naturally, the fact that some of the empirical data is not up to date.
